Street View deleted for much of S. Korea?
0
It appears that Street View coverage has been removed for most of South Korea (the main streets in Seoul, Busan, etc.) - is this a glitch or has the imagery been deleted?

hello j,
 
welcome to the google maps community forum!
 
i would have to check to confirm, but this could be because of local regulations.
 
there are sensitivities in south korea as a result of the situation with the north.

Thank you for reaching out! Yes, a large part of the country was covered (major cities, highways, and so on). This imagery is now missing.

Agreed. I used to be able to see street view for my city (Daegu, going back to 2014) as late as last week. It's now just photo spheres.

hi all,
 
could you all please let us know if what you are referring to (that is now missing) is what you believe to be google-produced street view imagery, captured using the google street view vehicles? and not anything contributed by google maps users?

It looked like Google-produced street view, it was the same as any other country I've looked at.

I can confirm Legandir's reply. Coverage of South Korea was extensive and similar to that of European countries and the US.
